Those values are looking much better now. You could stil push those darks darker. I recommend you try to learn how to do value keying, where you pick what value ranges youll be using on each focal point or fg/bg area of a piece before you start putting in the values. Value keying is very valuable and will help you overcome your problem, also it helps set the mood.
heyy thats pretty cool. where else do you post your stuff?

Are there any current artists out there that draw in, for lack of a better way of describing it, that really stylized, often flat and geometric artstyle you'd see a lot in 60s and 2000s cartoons? Alternatively, stuff akin to late2000s-2012 action shows (which tend towards less abstract, and are more of a hybrid between the aforementioned style and anime art) would also be acceptable.
I wanna study that type of art, but don't know where to look for it really; not counting like, stills from Clone High or some shit like that.

this is unfortunately the best leyendecker tutorial
no, the point of using thin paint is so you can put paint on top of it without compromising the integrity of the painting
the reason you do shadows thin is that light pigment won’t cover shit when thin
there is literally no reason to replicate this in digital because you have complete control over the color and no chemical nor physical component to think of
>the point of using thin paint is so you can put paint on top of it without compromising the integrity of the painting
Yes. And what does that produce?
I think I get the gist of it now. Thanks a bunch

Is it true that art is all about talent and not about hard work?
My sister said that people that are not talented are unable (even with a lot of work) to achieve mastery. Their brain is unable to condense and use all the information.
I love my sister and I trust her, but I'm really interested in your opinion.
Thank you very much! Love you all. Jesus loves you.

How do i train myself to draw more from imagination? I'm always drawing with references on the side and most of the time i need to look at photos to came out with something.
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
drawing from imagination is just drawing using mental references
reference draw so much that you have total mastery over what you want to draw

later on you can combine multiple references and claim you did it from imagination, crabs cant tell the difference because theyre too retarded
Your description is unclear.
Do you need pictures for ideas or for visual aid on how to pose subjects?
Read Bert Dodson's Keys to Drawing with Imagination. He lays down 4 principles:
1. Creativity occurs in action. Creativity before action(ideas in your head) are imaginations.
2. Creativity begins with simple ideas
3. Creativity increases with practice(most important point imo)
4. Creativity increases as judgment and criticism decreases, aka having freedom.

You need to practice by drawing from reference in order to feed your imagination. There's really no other way around it, unless you're a mild schizo.


also focus the basic shapes of objects and body parts. everything is made up of 3 basic shapes.

watch some stuff with kim jung gi, he draws everything without reference and you may find his takes really helpful.

Like, I've noticed that "cute girls" (and sometimes food) are very commonly like, a sorta "comfort food" type of subject many artists fall back on when they wanna draw something for fun/not-seriously. Why is that? I mean obviously I know [why], people like cute girls, but I just find it sorta odd that it's always that. There aren't any artists out there that like drawing, i dunno, cars, landscapes giant robots, etc as their "comfort food" subject?

Did you read the second half of the OP
samefag, also go fuck yourself.
>As for why Japanese girls...
Pretty sure you're just following weebs. Same with OP, I don't see any of this on my feed. Comfort stuff just seems to be regular portraits or people standing, no eating food.
sure cute girls are, arguably, the most popular subject nowadays, but it is not hard to find artist that draw other stuff as their comfort food
...I do admittedly follow one too many cartoony/furry artists... fuck.

Does anyone here even have aspirations to be a great artist?
Like, art history sort of art.
I just see a bunch of graphic designers, coomers, and animators.

Teachers are not famous or even good. They only seem famous to you because they are talked about in this beg-filled forum. Outside of art-learning communities they are not famous. The same with anime coom artists. Art-learning communities and anime twitter give skewed impression of who are famous.
Could you name some and post some of their stand out pieces?
Back then there wasn't nearly the same amount of competition as there is now
They all go on to teach eventually. When you get old and cant keep up with a demanding schedule, teaching sounds like a comfy job. It's the ones that start out as art teachers straight out of school that you dont want to take any advice from.

Anyways. Vilppu, Huston, Westermoe, Perkins and Legaspi off the top of my head. Most teachers and one of them is dead so I guess hes a former master.

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I'll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Proko Academy, and I've been involved in numerous secret raids on Villipu's house, and I have over 300 confirmed boxes. I am trained in schizophrenia and I'm the top shitposting in the entire /beg/ thread. You are nothing to me but just another smurf. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of #4217 cubes and your baraag is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your pixiv. You're fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I draw a box in over seven hundred ways, and that's just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed perspective but I have access to the entire arsenal of Loomis and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little "clever" comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn't, you didn't, and now you're paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You're fucking dead, kiddo.

I dont get this meme. Its grating as fuck.
The irony
Is it really? Wow.... That's shocking.. I had a medium Wacom Intuos pro 3 before i had my Cintiq and that thing honestly looks better than this thing.

I've been watching this dude for a little bit and this shit actually depresses me. Man made a 60 chapter webcomic and nobody read it. I read it and it wasn't even bad, I actually thought it was pretty soulful. Why did nobody else? Is it just a marketing thing? What went wrong?

this book didn't do it for me. All of the fabric looks like something in between duck canvas (really rigid fabric) and a heavy Carhartt shirt. It's thick but also has too many fold lines; it just looks unnatural. Overall it's unappealing to my eyes but the first sections of the book does a good job of trying to emphasize movement and force of the human body.
Just take what's useful to you and go do some clothes/drapery studies with the knowledge.
You goddamn lazy fucks.....give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to -- you know what who gives a shit. I just hope you people are actually drawing and not just hoarding.

Merry Christmas you filthy animal, and a happy new year.
This will make a great addition to my horde of books, thanks!
